It all started in the year 2017 with Chicago accountant Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) who agreed to launder money in the Ozarks. Standing on the very wrong side of the drug cartel gun, All he wanted is to exchange money for the safety of his loving family members.  Back in the month of January when we will go to the first part of season 4, Marty and his wife, Wendy (Laura Linney), both find themselves in deep with that cartel.

On the other hand, the first three seasons have been a thrill due to her troublesome relationship with Marty. Part 1 of season 4 ends when Ruth is rushing toward a highway, she is looking for Javier who is the nephew of Omar Navarro. It works as a reminder of the event of season four that actually showcased ambitious nephew, Omar’s fear of his hotheadedness.
